Tavik Swimwear top (available at Free People), Brandy Melville dress, clutch c/o KONOC, sunnies c/o Giant Vintage, Hurley bottoms

May I introduce you all to some of my favorite things: coconuts, good reads (via this Kindle, a wonderful Christmas gift from my brother), and this Tavik Swimwear top! I've been reading and consuming coconuts by the beach everyday, and consequently, getting burnt from the merciless sun. You guys are all familiar with this favorite dress of mine already, which I featured here. I personally enjoy seeing other bloggers remix items especially because seeing the new spin off of old items is refreshing, and nobody has an infinite amount of resources - so it's good to know bloggers are not being excessively wasteful! In fact, some of my favorite bloggers are those who make good, creative use of staple items.

Aside from the obviously amazing shredded back, the other reason why I adore this swim top so much is its cut. I feel like it's more modest than the usual triangle bikini top, which makes for much more fun playing water sports as well as some odd tank-top shaped sun-burns/tan lines... I feel like often we find ourselves using swimwear as an excuse to rest upon conventional fashion, but I try to hunt for atypical pieces that are exceptions to this habit.
